Lions Hill likes TEs

Lions QB Shaun Hill, who will start in place of the injured Matt Stafford against the Bills this Sunday, has a propensity to throw to Detroit tight ends Tony Scheffler and Brandon Pettigrew.

As the Detroit News’ Chris McCosky points out, in the five starts that Hill has made in place of Stafford this season, he has thrown to the tight ends 78 times. That’s better than 15 pass attempts per game to his tight ends. Granted, WR Nate Burleson was out of the lineup for a good portion of the time Hill was playing, and has caught fire of late in the Lions passing game.

But knowing Buffalo’s struggles in covering tight ends, it would not be surprising to see Hill looking their way early and often against Buffalo on Sunday.
